Yep, your gonna need stitches
After two years everything is finally coming together... In Guatemala
Not everything goes as planned, especially when it concerns boats and fishing, but if you keep at it long enough something good finally happens. I'm referring to the boat I sent down to Guatemala with my partner Capt. Dennis Wheeler, the Tijereta, a 25' Carver Diesel which Dennis and crew transformed into a great mini sportfisherman. We've been knocking bugs out of it and doing some fishing since it's first launch about a year and a half ago. There was always a problem and some handling issues so finally last week I took down a new hydraulic steering unit and Dennis had the turbo rebuilt by Volvo in the capital. As always I'm knocking on wood, but it was launched last week and last friday Capt. Gerald Jordan ran the first post rebuild charter. Well the fishing has been phenominal most of the past month so there was no real surprize that he posted 12 sailfish releases and three nice dorado for the box. All the boats have been running charters and all Dennis really had to say on numbers was, " Triple Headers every day."
My trip down was really a family affair and only for one week. I never made it out on the water myself but I did get some time to go over the future plans with Capt. Dennis and now that he has four boats up and running in the Parlama Sportfishing fleet he is really ready to get some anglers out on this great sailfish bite. Besides the "Tijereta", the fleet consists of the "Ballena", a 36' Pacemaker which may not be the fastest boat in the fleet but it is very comfortable and does raise fish. To cap it out are two 24', 4 stroke outboard "Super pangas" the Tonina and the "Manta Raya".
Now that everything is really ready to go I'll get back to work on the details on my web page and Facebook and keep reports posted here.
